YAY it was...
Madeline!! It was mailed the day after I bought it, so Jan. 2, and came today. Not too bad for cross border shipping. I'm pleased, both because they got it out so quickly but because customs didn't hold up my letter forever.I have half the cutting done, but I promise I won't sew it until the Verna mini is done.
Dad walked me to my van, and we had a bit of a chat. It was interesting. I rarely speak with my dad for any length of time, and for many, many reason's I have had a contentious and sometimes just ambiguous relationship with him. I'll say one thing though, he is a far better, and more interested, grandpa then he ever was dad.
I hope to have some progress in Verna to show tomorrow but I'm off to bed for now!
